WHO HAS SEEN THE WIND?


Who has seen the wind?
Neither I nor you:
But when the leaves hang trembling,
The wind is passing through.

SEPTEMBER


Then the flowers became very wild
because it was early September
and they had nothing to lose
they tossed their colors every
which way over the garden wall
splattering the lawn shoving their
wild orange red rain-disheveled faces
into my window without shame

– Poem by Grace Paley. From Begin Again: Collected Poems.

SEPTEMBER WOODS


A glory of gold
And russet and grey,
The tree-tops old
Glow in the day;
And, one by one,
The dry leaves fall,
And the Autumn sun
Smiles on them all

– Author unknown

All that is gold
does not glitter,
not all those who
wander are lost:
the old that is
strong does not
wither, deep roots
are not reached
by the frost.

– J.R.R Tolkien

OCTOBER   CATECHISMS  NO.4


The ritual sadness
of the season
is more voluptuos
than joy.

– Linda Pastan

From Carnival Evening: New and Selected Poetry 1968-1998
